glob.h - pathname pattern-matching types
The <glob.h> header defines the structures and symbolic constants used by the glob() function.
The structure type contains at least the following members:
size_t gl_pathc count of paths matched by pattern char **gl_pathv pointer to a list of matched pathnames size_t gl_offs slots to reserve at the beginning of gl_pathv
The following constants are provided as values for the flags argument:
- Append generated pathnames to those previously obtained.
- Specify how many null pointers to add to the beginning of
- Cause glob() to return on error.
- Each pathname that is a directory that matches pattern has a slash appended.
- If pattern does not match any pathname, then return a list consisting of only pattern.
- Disable backslash escaping.
- Do not sort the pathnames returned.
The following constants are defined as error return values:
- The scan was stopped because GLOB_ERR was set or returned non-zero.
- The pattern does not match any existing pathname, and GLOB_NOCHECK was not set in flags.
- An attempt to allocate memory failed.
- The implementation does not support this function.
The following are declared as functions and may also be declared as macros. Function prototypes must be provided for use with an ISO C compiler.
int glob(const char *, int, int (*)(const char *, int), glob_t *); void globfree (glob_t *);
The implementation may define additional macros or constants using names beginning with GLOB_.
